Pasadena's history dates back to the late 1800s. This history has been carefully preserved and is formally presented to the public in the form of unique walking & driving tours. These self-guided app tours are available for iPhone and Android devices. Available app tours cover historic gardens, estates, period-specific architecture and more. Pasadena also has a "neon signs driving tour," which identifies much of the unique and glowing signage made popular in the area during the mid-1900s. Pre-established tours are available using Pasadena's tour apps, but if something particular suits your fancy, you can also search specifically for nearby historically relevant destinations. Even without a guided tour, you can make a lovely afternoon of strolling through Old Pasadena. This bustling part of town is a great place to shop, people-watch, and grab a bite to eat. You'll find modern retailers tucked away in buildings with a rustic, old-town feel.
